The Zero Tolerance 0566BW by knifemaker Rick Hinderer is an outstanding example of a quality compact every day carry knife that is expected of ZT knives. The 0566BW model is a smaller version of the larger 0560/0561 models and also has assisted opening.
You will find that the handle, made of a black textured G10 front and stainless steel back, provides the perfect balance between ergonomics, comfort and grip. It is 4.45" long and has a deep pocket clip that can be positioned in tip up or tip down and right or left hand side providing you with multiple carry options. The transition from the blade to the jimping is smooth and the rounded corners of the grip add to the ease and comfort of use.
The blade is made from highly corrosion resistant black washed finish CPM S35VN powdered steel. Other benefits of using this type of steel for the blade that you will see include durability and wear resistance. The S35VN is a high-end steel provides you outstanding edge retention as well as toughness. The 0566BW is a perfect knife for all the dirty jobs performed with an EDC.
At an overall length of 7.70" and a weight of 5.3 ounces you will be able to utilize this knife to accomplish many tasks. The drop point blade is 3.25" long and 0.44" thick with a flat grind.
The knife handles well and deploying it from your pocket is made easy, smooth and fast with a superb spring assisted design, flipper and thumbstud opener.
